About Us

The Amherst Youth & Community Coalition (formerly Amherst Task Force for Healthy Community/Healthy Youth) is a diverse group of community leaders, educators, parents and citizens who collaborate to support positive youth development and prevent the use of alcohol, marijuana, tobacco and other substances by young people.  As an active Coalition, we provide resources and work to facilitate healthy decision making by all members of our community.



The mission of the Amherst Youth & Community Coalition is to support, promote and link community asset building efforts for youth and their families.
